Vittadinia sulcata N.T.Burb.

Brunonia 5: 41 (1982) APNI

Taxonomic status:Accepted

Occurrence status:Present

Establishment means:Native

Threat status:Victoria: data deficient (k)

In habit and general morphology resembling Vittadinia cervicularis, but cypselas (and usually involucral bracts) lacking glands or glandular hairs, glabrous in the lower third to half (except for a tuft of hairs around the basal callus) and the marginal ribs of the cypselas not significantly broader than the facial ribs. Flowers Apr.–Jun. (2 records).

EGU. Also WA, NT, SA, Qld, NSW. In Victoria apparently confined to rain-shadow woodlands of the upper Snowy River, near Suggan Buggan.

At least in the 2 Victorian collections, very close to V. cervicularis (with or near which it grows) and perhaps better recognised at an infraspecific level.
